                              health center in Korea upon arrival.

                              The 19 designated countries are:

                                 Orientation schedule (mandatory)
                                  - Spring 2021 semester : February 25, 2021 (tentative)
                                  - Fall 2021 semester : August 26, 2021 (tentative)

     Meals and Food           Students can buy various types of meals on and off-campus, and also cook some
                              instant snacks in the shared kitchen of the dormitory. Students usually use the
                              kitchen to cook noodles, sandwiches, and small snacks or to keep their own food
                              in the communal refrigerator. Normal meal prices range from 3,500 won to
                              7,000 won (approx. USD $ 3~7) per meal.

     Opening a bank account   This is optional. If students would like to open a bank account in Korea, they will
                              need to bring an Alien Registration Card (Alien Registration Card information will
                              be announced during the orientation) and a passport.

                              ISEP students and GKS Exchange students must open a bank account in Korea to
                              receive their meal stipend.
     Other important          Every fall semester, there is Ajou International Day festival where students present
     information              their culture and food, and introduce their school to Ajou. It is a good idea for
                              students to bring traditional displays and costumes to wear them to the festival.
